Following a long-standing habit of remaking myself every few years, I have renamed my former “Teaching/Learning & Technology” blog “Ruthk’s Makerspace,” and started off in a new direction.
For the past few years I have been devoting time at the elementary school where I volunteer as a tutor/mentor to help teachers and school administrators make and maintain their own classroom blogs and websites. I have gone as far as I could with that project, and now I am going to use this found time to learn 3D drawing and printing techniques to create some custom knitting looms for my other hobby, Knitting Together Cville. I am just getting started, and this will take a while. Don’t hold your breath!
I am hoping that in the future I might be offered the opportunity to help some of the kids learn about 3D printing . I just read some advice on choosing a hobby that said to make sure before you start that it is something you can accomplish. If kids can do it, I should be able to learn, right? Well, as I said, don’t hold your breath.
